5 Dimensional Comprehensive Chromatography System
5D Ultra-e (LC-GCxGC-MS/MS system) is a unique system that combines a comprehensive two-dimensional GC and TQMS with an HPLC system connected online. This system is the only one of its kind in the world. The five dimensions provided by the LC + GCxGC + MS/MS system opens the road to analysis with even higher separation and higher selectivity.
The system includes HPLC (Prominence) units, LC-GC transfer unit (AOC-5000 Plus and OPTIC-4PTV), GCxGC unit (GC-2010 Plus and ZX-2), and a MS/MS (GCMS-TQ8040).
Dedicated software is used to control each unit of the LC-GCxGC-MS/MS system. However, 5D Solution collectively manages all of these control software programs, so that analysis can be started with a single click.
